IRB Barcelona seeks an experienced Bioinformatician to work in the Genome Data Science Laboratory
(Dr. Fran Supek) at the Cancer Science Programme at the IRB Barcelona.
The group aims to attract a Bioinformatics Research Assistant to work on large-scale statistical analyses of genomic data originating from human tumors and of cancer cell lines, with the goal of discovering new opportunities for treatment of cancer.
The role of the Bioinformatics Research Assistant will focus on the provision of broad, state-of-the-art bioinformatics and biostatistics analysis to support research in the Genome Data Science group. In particular, this will involve applying bioinformatics tools to obtain and process genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic data. Moreover we will develop of customized bioinformatics pipelines for analysis and interpretation of DNA sequencing data and CRISPR screening data generated in the Genome Data Science lab and/or collaborating labs at IRB or elsewhere.
There is a possibility that the Bioinformatics Research Assistant may develop their own research projects, if they wish to do so and if the projects fit within the interests of the lab (for more information, please refer to the Genome Data Science web site at https://agendas.irbbarcelona.org ).
The initial contract is for 1 year with a possibility of extension. Anticipated starting date is 01-Dec-2019 although it is possible to start before or after that date.
